If you know your Australian producers, Dave Powell might ring a bell as the founder of Torbreck Wines. Torbreck is famous for high-octane Barossa beauties that once reeled in collectors and 100 point scores. Dave’s genius was finding decrepit vineyards, nursing them back to impeccable health, and harvesting precious amounts of amazing fruit. Since selling Torbreck, Dave has established a consulting business with his son, Callum. First order of business - get hold of some of the fruit that used to go to Torbreck; and second, send Callum to France to train with one of the Rhône greats, Jean-Louis Chave. The entire range is fabulous, pricey and made in very small quantities. The Riverside is a blend of Grenache, Mataro (the name often used for Mourvèdre in Oz) and Shiraz, all from mature vineyards. They use an old basket press and concrete tanks to spotlight the grapes’ true expression, with just a short barrel burnish. When Dave and Callum visited New District in the early spring, I had a chance to really appreciate the savoury, Rhône-like nature of their wines. Richly fruited with mulberries and minty lifts, the tannins are chamois-soft, and perfectly pitched acidity adds freshness and elegance.
